Not only is Lewis walking away on a high note, he's giving teammates extra playoff motivation too.

To get to fulfill that pledge while also retiring as a starter on a playoff team, after a Hall of Fame career, well, if that doesn%u2019t qualify as the perfect time to walk away, what does?

Walking away like Warren Sap and Michael Strahan did, right after winning the Lombardi trophy. That would qualify as picture perfect timing. He doesn't deserve any less. I hope this channels the fire and everyone balls out the next 4 games. At the very least he should be able to avenge past playoff defeats against Payton and Tom. Would love to see him notch a couple of sacks against those two.

This should teach me a valuable lesson. I never had the opportunity to go to the bank or see Ray play live in a stadium. I promised myself that I would go see Ray and the Ravens in a home game next year (hopefully the home opener). Now, I still want to go but I am sad that I never had the opportunity to witness the insanity, the madness that everyone talks about when he walks out of the tunnel.

You have to make the most out of every day and take advantage of the opportunity you have today because you never know what will happen tomorrow. I waited till "tomorrow" to go see him and "tomorrow" he will not be there.

Hopefully they Ravens make it to the Superbowl that way I can pay an arm and leg for a ticket but at least I will be able to see him play before he goes into the sunset.

Ray please 1 more year (unless we win the Lombardi). Your son is going to college yes, but he will be a Freshman. Freshmen barely play. He could very well be riding pine his entire first year. Give us 1 more year then go be the perfect daddy. Just 1 more.

Ray Lewis is such a class act and I like his decision to be there for his son. What a good father he is and I really hope we can make it to the Super Bowl to give him a shot at another Super Bowl MVP. That would be an awesome way to go out!

Ray is going out on his terms. For his family and his peace. He made a promise to RLIII that if he went to college on a scholarship, he would be there. All you have is your word.

Stubhub has tickets and I'm sure there will be scalpers. It will be a serene yet dreamlike moment waiting for Ray Ray to exit the tunnel. If you can find a way to go, you should. You'll always remember it. I know I will.

The City that reed 20, I know Strahan and Sap are not half the player Lewis is. My comment was never a comparison of talent, just a scenario of how to walk out 100% on top as league champions. I was referencing solely the "perfect timing" scenario.

Slowboater, I couldn't agree more with you. I know I will cherish the moment for the rest of my life. And I know Ray is going out on his terms primarily because of the promise he made his son. If I only lived in Bmore or in the continental US it would be a little easier to make my way over to the bank. With just a few days till game day it will be hard to be able to make it. Hopefully this team is SB bound, that will give me the best opportunity to see him (although it won't be at the bank, but I guess I could live with that) lol.

i feel u. I've never been to a Ravens game but have always planned on attending at least one, just to see number 52 come out of the tunnel and do his dance. That was on my bucket list and now im sad that he is actually done after this season. I know he's old but I thought he had at least one year left in him. I understand his reason though, he's a great father!

Still, its hard to picture the Ravens without The Raven :(

Timing may be perfect, but still hard to accept.....Best wishes always, to the greatest player that ever has and ever will put on a Ravens uniform. Retire #52 when Ray plays his last game, hopefully in 4 more games.

"We owe it to Ray and to the fans to keep him out there playing as long as possible," Ravens safety Bernard Pollard said.

Basically everything Ray did his entire time with that Ravens was perfect, so this comes as no surprise.
